The Importance of Regular Maintenance
The heat is on in Sarasota and Charlotte counties. It’s time to get your AC into shape. A tune up will help ensure that your air conditioner is ready to handle the summer season’s constant curve balls of heat and humidity.
We recommend having your system tuned up annually. We’re not alone in this. Annual AC maintenance is also encouraged by EnergyStar.
We know, regular maintenance may seem like a burden. But don’t be fooled. The long-term benefits of a well-maintained air conditioner can outweigh the cost of yearly tune ups.
To help put things in perspective, imagine this. What if an athlete, after sitting on the bench for an entire season, was suddenly expected to play the championship game with no prior warm-up? Do you think he’d play his best game? The same goes for your air conditioner.
For example, dust, dirt and other particulate matter builds up on the condenser and evaporator coils over time. This build-up causes your system to run less efficiently. Or, your air conditioner could have developed a mechanical or electrical problem which would cause it to malfunction.
During a tune up, a licensed HVAC technician will check and clean your system, allowing him to discover any issues and correct them before they become serious. Your AC will function more efficiently and be less likely to break down during periods of heavy use. This will save your time, your money and your comfort!
